The chairman of the Blender Foundation Ton Roosendaal has just announced the unfortunate news that the 2021 Amsterdam Blender Conference will have to be postponed for the second year in a row due to the ongoing sanitary crisis.

While the slowing down of the pandemic in some regions of the world over the past couple of months sparked a glimmer of hope as to the potential fate of this year's Blender Conference, the prevalence of variants and constant regional flare ups still made the decision to hold a massive internationial conference a few short months from now an impossible one.
Ton mentionned that a special virtual Blender 3.0 themed community event is in the works, akin to last years "Together Apart" video. He also didn't rule out the possibility of organizing smaller local "premieres" around the virtual event depending on the situation.
